African Adventure

Making the most of childhood


African Adventure is an authentic African village nestled in Suffolk coastline woodland on the grounds of a 1920's mansion.


Sizewell Hall’s main areas consist of a large lounge, a dining room with an adjacent catering kitchen, a small library and an assembly room. Bedrooms sleep between 2 - 6 people with easterly rooms boasting a sea view. The hall has a lift for disabled access to the first and second floors, and in addition to the shared bathrooms, several wet rooms. When staying in the hall, school staff can access free WiFi, and a payphone is made available given mobile signal is historically poor.

We also have five authentic African huts in which schools can choose to spend some or all of the nights sleeping in. Facilities are purposefully basic given the subject of the program. This option is comparable therefore to camping. Guests are asked to bring their own sleeping bags and are provided with mattresses. The village complex has its own toilet, and is encircled by a fence with a gate that is locked at night.

Site facilities

The base location for the majority of the stay is a sheltered outdoor meeting area with adjoined catering kitchen, shower blocks, toilets, rooms and halls for indoor activities. We also have a further large hall with an indoor scaling wall, and outside a low ropes course, archery field and campfire site.

The site has private access to Sizewell beach which is used for some activities and free time. Finally, there is a small shop located in the main house which sells sweets and souvenirs. Access and budget are dictated by the visiting school.
